Figma Glitches on Intel UHD 730. WebGL context lost error

Hello Everyone, I am not sure if this is the right place to post the query. But I am facing alot of performance issues while using figma with my new Intel 11th Gen i5 11400 on intel uhd 730. I don’t have a graphic card installed in this pc. I have tried multiple drivers and ports but the problem still remain the same.

The figma screen is lagging like hell as soon as I start panning around and turns to completely grey.

Please help. Attached is the screenshot

Restart Figma. Open the design file. Open console. Try to reproduce the gray screen issue. Check the console for errors.

Is there an error “WebGL: CONTEXT_LOST_WEBGL: loseContext: context lost”?


@tank666 here’s the attachment for the error. After this the whole screen got grey as soon as I started panning and zoomed in. And I have to restart the figma and it goes again and again not letting me to work at all. :frowning:

Launching Figma with the --disable-gpu-compositing flag helped me.

Create or edit a Figma shortcut so that the Object field reads: "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Figma\Figma.exe" --disable-gpu-compositing.

You can also launch Figma through the command prompt.

@tank666 it Worked :slight_smile: . A little laggy but overall alot better than Basic Adapter Driver experience. Thanks alot man. You saved my life. :slight_smile: :+1:

@tank666 did it disabled the GPU acceleration? And how this issue will be resolved without disabling it? Thanks again

Unfortunately, I have not found another way. You can try changing the parameters in the GPU driver settings. Also contact support, maybe you will be prompted for a different solution.

@tank666 it resolved it to some extent but didn’t fully resolved. The figma get’s stuck completely very often and starts to work again. :frowning: I believe we have to wait for the update from either figma or intel hd driver. Let’s see. Thanks anyway.

Bump. Have the same issue with UHD 750
